Gallimard is what all the cool kids are drinking these days ---we were lucky to grab about 20 cases of the Cuvee de Prestige Millesime 2014, just-landed off the container from France and ready to cool you down, big time. Normally $60! TODAY? $34! Crazy!

1930! It was Prohibition in America, but the Gallimard family started making serious Champagne and it was one happy day when we discovered them a few years ago. They own 10 hectares in the village of Les Riceys, heavily planted to Pinot Noir. Gallimard can be hard to find -- that’s why we fly over there every spring to visit the 17th century (!!) vaulted stone cellars to make sure we get some! What a price, too! SUPER limited though...grab it...oh, and here’s some cool info on Gallimard, and their place among Champagne Producers Redefining France’s Bubbly. Check it out!

Four years on the lees (on the yeast) and an extra 3 in bottle make this a gorgeous, toasty, sweet bread-dough aromatic sensation --- white flowers, orange blossom, croissant and candied lemon -- bone dry, of course and refreshing as a dip in a cool stream. SO GOOD! Wild price for vintage bubbly! While it lasts!

TASTING NOTES 

Aromas of white flowers, lemon and toasted bread. Ripe fruit and honey on the palate and a long persistent finish.

THE STORY TO KNOW

"Located in the village of Les Riceys, in the heart of the côte des Bar, the Gallimard domain has been passed on from father to son for 6 generations. Today Didier and Arnaud orchestrate together our 12 Hectares (29 acres) of vineyard, brought to life using viticulture of conviction and sustainability."
